, stormwater development -- these are independent technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water now comes from the delaware river, early engin

's in an environment where israel as well as many u s lawmakers don't think that iraq should develop nuclear technology at all. the obama administration had to gauge the diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge he runs right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time. we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding. iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy. but because of its record of violating its obligations. iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear programs that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon. the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement. despite the officials attempts to appease the hawks with punches are flying here looks like we tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you gonna say on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the falling rain. another set of marco rubio call that dea

wrong, it's about to go be wrong. melissa: very optimistic of you. >> technologically, yes, you could do this today, periodly on a one-time -- immediately on a one-time case. you can't do this with hundreds or thousands of drones making multiple deliveries. and the biggest hurdle is the regulations involved. there is no regulatory framework for this type of commerce to take place in. technology always takes place before the regulatory framework. let me give you one quick historical example, orville and wilbur wright figure out how to fly, it wasn't until 1926 when the federal government established the safety and regulatory framework that allowed commercialization of aviation. we just don't -- melissa: yeah, for sure we don't know any of these thing, but, bruce, when i saw in this, you were the first person that i thought of because i hought what fantastic marketing and advertising. if these little things are flying all over the place, and shockingly they all say amazon prime. what a marketing opportunity, right? >> jeff besos got on national television during the most important shoppin

if there is an accident to review what happened. i know there's a technology called positive train and control or ptc designed to automatically stop or slow a train before certain accidents occur to prevent train to train collisions or derailments. do we know if this train had that technology? >> we know that this train did not have that technology. now, let's talk a little bit about the technology. it's a communications and signaling system that the ntsb says is capable of preventing accidents caused by human error. specifically excessive speed. also, failure to obey signals. now the technology, what it does is uses wi-fi and gps signals along with sensors along the railroad track to essentially track the train's location and speed restrictions. if the train is going too fast, well, on board equipment automatically either stops or slows down the train. again, this train did not have that technology. however, congress has set a december, 2015 deadline for all passenger trains and freight trains carrying hazardous materials to have this technology, wolf. >> rene will have a lot more on this story comi
